Pen Kingston

Clifford Olson Was King of Kingston Pen

I used to visit Kingston pen -- which is now shutting down -- throughout one summer about 20 years ago to visit the late Clifford Olson, Canada's most notorious serial killer of 11 young people. Olson fit in well at Kingston. He had a bounce in his step, eyes probing every direction, cheerfully greeting people, gesturing and not the slightest subdued. The contrast with other inmates was startling.
